Democrats think they got off after President Donald Trump was impeached and Inspector General Michael Horowitz said he did not find evidence of political bias in the FBI investigation of the president’s campaign.
But the investigation is not over as Attorney General William Barr told Fox News host Martha MacCallum.
The Inspector General’s report was limited as to what agencies and people he could talk to, but the investigation of U.S. Attorney John Durham does not have those restrictions.
Barr said that he did not expect to get the report for “for quite a few months” but assured MacCallum that “He is moving very diligently.”
Some people have suggested that Durham could file his report in the next few weeks, but Barr does not see that happening.
“Just based on my general knowledge of the things that he is looking at or has to look at in the future,” he said. “I would not think that he would be in a position for quite a few months.”
Barr hired Durham to investigate the investigators and make certain that the probe into the president’s campaign was done lawfully and was necessary.
Barr’s concern, and the concern of many in and around the president’s campaign and his voters, is the apparent loathing some investigators had for both the president and his supporters.
“He is looking at other agencies and also private — departments, and also private actors. So it is a much broader investigation,” he said. “And also, he’s not just looking at the FISA aspect of it. He is looking at all the conduct, both before and after the election.”
Democrats have pointed to the fact that Horowitz did not find any political bias, but that is not entirely true.
He also said that he could not rule out political bias and no wonder, all you have to do is read the texts between former FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
They talked about their contempt for the president and even the “smell” of his supporters in a North Virginia Walmart.
They also talked about having an insurance policy in case President Trump won, which he did. Many people believe that insurance policy was the Russia investigation.
And then there is the former FBI and CIA members like Andrew McCabe, James Comey and John Brennan who have made careers out of appearing on television and attacking the president.
To think that there was not political bias against President Trump defies credulity and the walls have begun to close in on the Deep State actors and their nefarious plan.
They have played this game for three years but when that report comes in it is going to be game over.
